Of the campus, Dr. Fitzgerald ssid: “It will aim to bring together law, business and entrepreneurship in technology and create a hub for developing and supporting enterprises in the city.” He further added that “It will allow for the further development of existing collaborations with the practitioner base in business, law, education, health and the growing number of technology companies.”
